A Desert Place
by Lori Godfrey  
10/02/2010 / Christian Living


A Desert Place


Driving along Highway 58 in the Mohave Desert, you quickly believe
It is dead, with no sense of life. It would seem upon first glimpse no animal life existed, only plants.
But you soon realize there are indeed mammals occupying the desert.

Just in the classification of mammals alone there are 45. Something else that soon catches the attention of humans is the humidity that the desert is famous for. The hottest temp on record is 134. Unless one will adapt to the humidity then one will not like desert living.

The idea behind this article is of a spiritual nature. Just as the desert is real, so is the reality of our spiritual lives. There are times when we feel we are living in a desert place. Everyone vanishes and God seems a million miles away. A desert place is all too often a place of solitude, where the Creator can talk to his children.

There are instances in the Bible where we find individuals going to commune with God. The desert is a place of beauty but also a place to be revered. Unless the correct precautions are taken, and taken seriously, one can lose their life in the desert.

These days, unlike Biblical times, one must adhere to the common sense rules of desert adventures. In Biblical times, those who lived before us knew the way of the desert. How can we in our personal lives come to the conclusion that our desert place is a place of beauty? It is all in the way we view our circumstances.

Are you going through a terminal illness, a death of a loved one or perhaps a divorce? Those are all horrific places in our lives and places where only God Himself can meet our needs. The desert has its purpose. God created it for a reason. Those who live in the geographical regions wouldn't think of moving elsewhere.

It has a life of its own and a beauty all to itself. The plants, animals and people are a special breed. Only certain types of animal life can thrive in the desert. The heat in the day and the cold temperatures at night make it what it is, a unique place.

A desert place is defined differently by people; it is in the eye of the beholder. Driving through the desert as quite as it is makes one think God may not be in the desert. But in the quiet times, that is when He is the closest.

He has made a promise to his children. He will always be with us, even until the end of the age.
